    Tito Gobbi, Boris Christoff, Victoria De Los Angeles. I've not heard of the tenor, Giuseppe Campora, but he also is excellent. All seemingly at their peaks.

    Considering this 'Simon' was recorded in 1958, and had 1990 remastering to CD format, it's a terrific candidate for 24Bit/96KHZ remastering, as the sound is only pretty good.
    I've got this and I agree.

    Gosh, I just remembered this was a 2014 release as well. So many operas released (revivals/rediscovered works) this year!
    I think this is a top Vivaldi too.

    Sampling more classic Wagner from the Met on YouTube.

    First the 1936 Meistersinger, one of only two complete recorded performances of the opera featuring Friedrich Schorr, the greatest Hans Sachs ever. Also noteworthy for the beautiful Eva of Elisabeth Rethberg.



    Then the 1937 Siegfried, the only complete recording of his signature role by Lauritz Melchior, and featuring Schorr as the Wanderer and Kirsten Flagstad as the awakened Brünnhilde.



    Looks like more purchases in my future. My poor wallet!

    Having a bit of a Klaus Florian Vogt marathon. I love that man. These are the perfect roles for him, particularly Paul in Die Tote Stadt.

    those are three wonderful operas

    and I think Dasch is a beautiful Elsa to Vogt's Lohengrin

    now I know we all think Clayton gets way too over excited listening to opera

    but this is available on spotify for you to listen to

    There are some really beautiful moments

    I don't think that.

    Actually, Clayton, I admire the way you've consistently opened yourself to new experiences and expanded your knowledge of opera since you joined us (I only wish my own interests were as wide-ranging). In your modest, unassuming way, but with boundless curiosity and enthusiasm, you've added something very special to Opera Lively.

    There. I've gone and said it.

    I'm glad you say that. I was reading one of the usual bitchfests on Parterre Box and they were tearing her voice and singing to shreds (in the Met Meistersinger) but every time I have seen or heard her I have enjoyed her performance very much.

    I like her portrayal of Elsa so much that I was thinking that the controversial production of Lohengrin would be my first DVD that I would buy of my favourite Wagner opera
